CutLog is a professional software application designed specifically for helping you manage your sawmill business. It comes with support for features that allow you to increase profit and utilization of wood, calculate the optimum sawing for a given diameter, and optimize costs.
Clean feature lineup
The GUI looks clean and provides at-a-glance panel with a set of tools which can be activated with the click of the mouse.
On the downside, there’s no support for a help manual and the list with configuration parameters is quite hard to digest, so rookies may need to invest extra time and effort into decoding the program’s features.
Wood species, shrinkage allowance, normatives and products
CutLog gives you the possibility to keep track of multiple wood species along with information about the ID of the species, local name, and Latin name.
Shrinkage allowance can be kept for various species (including details about the nominal size at 20% humidity). In addition, you are allowed to enter data about the norm number, description, length, and round, as well as adjust the thickness/width of the timber.
When it comes to product management, the application lets you check out extensive information about each product, such as invoice thickness and width, cutting width, price side, and comment. You may add or delete groups, and export data to XLS file format.
Optimization and additional features
The tool offers support for several optimization modules, namely FlexiCut 2, Circular, Flexi, Multi or Pattern Cut. Each of the aforementioned parameters comes with a rich-featured suite of settings for helping you define the process in detail.
CutLog lets you tweak monthly settings (e.g. fixed and variable costs, working hours, productive minutes), manage sawing speed, keep track of customers (e.g. name, street, country, email address) and suppliers (e.g. street, city, country, contact person, mobile number), and calculate costs based on labor costs, burden rate and profit.
General configuration settings
The utility allows you to pick the currency and preferred thickness, set up the price for chips and sawdust, reassign hotkeys, as well as pick the formula for the log volume.
